For Immediate Release
Newark, Del. - For
customers participating in Delmarva Power's voluntary Energy Wise Rewards
program, an additional test conservation period will be called Friday, May 30,
from 9 to 10 a.m. in order to confirm system enhancements made following the
May 28 equipment test. These tests will ensure equipment readiness prior to the
peak summer season.
For those participating customers, Delmarva Power will
cycle off air conditioner compressors for short intervals during this time
frame. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, however, most
customers will not notice a temperature change in their homes. It may take up
to half an hour after the test event ends for air conditioners to resume normal
Energy Wise Rewards is a voluntary program that offers
customers a choice of a programmable thermostat or an outdoor switch, which the
utility installs at no charge to the customer. During summer periods of peak
electric demand, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage by
cycling off central air conditioner compressors for short periods of time
during periods of peak electricity use. Customers will receive bill reductions
in return for allowing Delmarva to cycle their air conditioners a few days each
